When we take our first science classes in school, we learn about the laws of attraction and how they relate to the world of science. Did you know that the Laws of Attraction actually have a correlation to our personal lives and the real world?
We all know that opposites attract and that likes repel, when it comes to magnets, however, in meditation, spirituality, and thought patterns it is the exact opposite. You may be wondering exactly What Is The Law Of Attraction, this article will start you on your studies of the Laws of Attraction and how they can be used in your daily life and practice.
What is the Law of Attraction
The Law of Attraction is all about aligning your thoughts and actions into what you want to happen in your life. It practices the success principle of ‘what you think about, you bring about’. This success strategy really gained prominence thanks to the movie The Secret, which had its ‘world premiere’ in March 2006. Since then, millions of people all over the globe have applied the universal Law of Attraction into their daily lives and proclaim that their lives have been better ever since. So, should you be practicing the Law of Attraction as well?
One of the great things about the universal Law of Attraction is that its tenets are not hard to put into practice at all! In fact, many people say that the biggest secret in the movie The Secret, is that its doctrines are not classified at all! The underlying principles of the Law of Attraction have been with us, ready to be practiced, all this time. So why then have we abandoned these steps to success?
Life happened and somehow, somewhere, people started believing that they do not deserve happiness. As such, people wake up afraid to expect the best and prepare for the worse. Do you see that this is still the Law of Attraction working? By THINKING that the worst will happen, people are bringing about problems to themselves. So kick the habit! Expect the best and the best will happen to you.
Here are some simple tips so you can start living the Law of Attraction and start attracting success into every aspect of your life.
Laws of Attraction in daily practice
Practice the attitude of gratitude the minute you wake up. Nothing can be a better caffeine kick than happiness so why not start your day with this Law of Attraction exercise: remember all the wonderful things you are (or ought to be) grateful for. Even on a subconscious level, a lot of people live as if they are ‘victims’ instead of ‘drivers’ of life. Avoid this trap by starting each day with thoughts of how great and beautiful your life is at the moment. This mental exercise will ‘set the stage’ of more beautiful things to come.
Pay it forward. The universe is not all about you. The Law of Attraction is based on the universal law of cause and effect and nothing can be more positively powerful than doing a good deed for someone. You don’t have to go out and save lives, but simple things such as helping an elderly cross the street or helping direct someone who’s lost can do wonders on two levels: First, you WILL feel good about yourself and if you’re happy, the universe will smile back at you in one form or another. Secondly, the person you assisted will think happy thoughts of you too, further attracting positive vibes!
Align your outer world with your inner world. As mentioned in the movie The Secret, you cannot cheat the universe. Even if you think or say you’re ready for happiness and success, the way you live, dress and act is the true measure. So synchronize your intentions and your actions. For instance, if you want that better-paying job, don’t just wish for it; act on it! Prepare a knock-out resume, network with other people, change your wardrobe and dress for success! Life success is not handed out, it is the end based on your means.
End the day with ‘happy thoughts’! Do this simple Law of Attraction exercise: imagine yourself living a certain ‘moment’. For example, in the romance department, close your eyes and envision that romantic dinner with your special someone (regardless if you already have a special someone or not!). Is your goal to purchase a new home? Close your eyes and picture yourself tending the garden at the back of your new home or sitting down and reading a book in your new home’s living room. Remember, what you think about…you bring about.
You Must First BE What You Want
Many people try to use the Law of Attraction to build a life that is truly worthy of them. They become frustrated at their lack of progress simply because they have gotten the order of manifestation wrong. Don’t fall into the same trap. Learn that you must first BE what you want, then DO what is necessary to achieve it, so that you can HAVE your desire.
One of the biggest problems people find when they try to use the Law of Attraction for the first time is resistance from the outside world. It seems that no matter what they do the world pushes against them. It appears that the harder they strive for their desires the more the world pushes back. They then fall into the trap of blaming the world for their woes. This is a disastrous mindset to have if you wish to successfully and consciously employ the Law of Attraction to your advantage.
Mahatma Gandhi, the great Indian leader who peacefully freed his country from British rule, told his followers, “become the change you want to see in the world.” These words are just as true today as they were when this wise man walked the planet. In order to have what you want, you must be willing to do what is necessary to achieve it, and this can only be achieved when you become the very thing you want!
Let me explain this in a little more detail. The Law of Attraction can bring you anything and everything you want. In fact, anything you can hold in mind can be yours, if you follow the rules of this Universal Law.
The Foundation of Universal Law
A universal law is one that is applicable everywhere, in every situation, and effects everyone/thing. It is the fundamental principle that describes and defines relationships between all the various things. Depending on the school of thought that you follow, there are between seven and twelve Universal Laws of which the Law of Attraction is but one. Each law talks about interaction between events, things, and others and outlines the best ways to handle them. They are meant to be guides in our journey and help us make better decisions. Here is a generalized view of how ALL of the Universal Laws can be explained.
Trying to change other people or change the world is the wrong approach to achieving your dreams. You must change yourself. By holding in mind the things you want, and believing that it is truly possible for you to have them, you will immediately begin to attract them. However, if you wish to change the world or other people, you are holding in mind the very things you do not want. You are affirming to yourself that things are not OK the way they are. The Law of Attraction immediately kicks in and you begin to attract more of those things.
By accepting the world and other people the way they are you will begin to embrace the moment and unleash your true power to create. You cannot change the world and you cannot change others, but you can change yourself. This is where your true power lies. When you change yourself internally the world around you begins to change as you start to attract people, circumstances, situations and physical objects that reflect your changed beliefs, attitude, thoughts and feelings.
This is why it is important to hold on to an attitude of gratitude for the things you already have. You can even be grateful for where you are in life right now, no matter how bad it is, because this is the launching platform for your new improved life.
The Law of Attraction in Practice
With all of this, you may be wondering how or where do you start? It can seem daunting to think about and the act of letting others thoughts and opinions go can also seem scary. The truth is that it is easy to start practicing the Laws of Attraction. Let’s take a look at the basics.
Start from where you are. Wherever you are in life it is the right place for you right now. Just be satisfied to begin from where you are and you will soon get to where you want to go. Now you can start thinking about things you would like to have in your life. Are you happy with your job or relationship? Are there changes you can make that would make them better? Are some of your habits detrimental to your mindset and life? Maybe these are the things you want to focus on changing.
Once you have identified the things in life you wish to have, begin to think of them often. Imagine that you are already in possession of them. This is you becoming at one with your desire. Once you can hold your desire in mind and see, feel and accept that you are in possession of it, you have become your future vision. This is your desire. Look at children, they are excellent at this. It is a natural state of mind and not as hard to achieve as you may imagine. Just allow yourself to do it. Have fun and play with your internal vision. Enjoy it!
Be flexible enough to allow the Universe to deliver these things to you as it sees fit. However, some action is required! Be prepared to take some steps towards your goal. No matter how small or insignificant these steps are, take at least some action everyday that will bring you closer to your desires.
You will soon find that as you take even small steps towards your desires and stay true to your inner vision the Universe will rush to meet you. Coincidences will occur and you will find opportunities are presented to you. As long as you are generating positive emotions around your internal vision the action needed by you will be pleasurable and feel natural.
Attracting the best
So remember, BE what you desire, Then DO what you have to in order to bring you closer to those desires and then you will HAVE everything you want! As long as you are not infringing on another’s movement through life.
